Michael Laudrup, Xavi Hernandez and Sergio Busquets are the best three midfielders according to Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta.

“Michael Laudrup is my idol from childhood. His technique and his beatiful play style, the way he attacked as a midfielder; I’ve been trying to be like him since I was a kid,” said Iniesta while explaining his first choice as quoted by Barca Blaugranes.

“I played with Xavi for a long time and I’ve watched him a lot on television. He is my ideal player because of how he can control games. He has the ability to provide quality passes in the right places and he is also a leader. He really is an ideal midfielder for me, ” the Spaniard said about his second choice.

“Just like Xavi, I played with Sergio Busquets for a long time too, both with Barcelon and in the Spanish national team. He plays a very important role, the supporting midfielder – he can read football matches so well,” Iniesta said, adding, “He’s a good passer but he also creates passing lanes for the centre-backs as well. His role is very important to make the Barcelona system work.”
